The Science Centre is a space where visitors of all ages can learn-through-play and discover ways to think like a scientist every day
On September 26, 1969, a radio signal from over 1.5 billion light-years away struck a circuit that raised the curtain at the Ontario Science Centre’s official opening.
As a gift to the people of Ontario to mark Canada’s Centennial, the provincial government commissioned architect Raymond Moriyama in 1964 to design the Ontario Science Centre—one of the first interactive science museums in the world. The Science Centre has since welcomed more than 54 million visitors.
We’re one of Ontario’s most significant cultural attractions—more than a destination, the Science Centre is a space where visitors of all ages can learn-through-play and discover ways to think like a scientist every day.
Guided by the belief that science, technology and innovation will help us shape a better future, we continue to lead the way internationally with our incredible team of scientists, educators and exhibition creators who conceive, develop, design and build world-class exhibitions, award-winning educational programs and innovative science learning experiences.
